Eagles QB Jalen Hurts threw for just 204 yards, no TDs and an INT in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars. He did add 38 yards and a TD on the ground, 1 of 4 rushing scores for the Eagles in the game. Hurts gave way to a career high in carries for Miles Sanders, faced a Jacksonville defense that has started the season strong and played in rainy conditions. It's a disappointing fantasy day for a QB that has been winning fantasy matchups so far this year, but we see no cause for concern going forward.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts delivered his 3rd straight top-4 fantasy performance to open the season -- pending Monday night's results -- with a big outing in the win over Washington. Hurts had light rushing day, collecting just 20 yards on 98 attempts. But he racked up 340 yards and 3 TDs passing, with no turnovers. Hurts found WR DeVonta Smith, WR A.J. Brown and TE Dallas Goedert for scores -- all in the 2nd quarter. He gets non-scary matchups with the Jaguars and Cardinals the next 2 weeks, with likely the biggest challenge so far looming in a Week 6 home date with Dallas.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts enjoyed a big night in Monday's one-sided victory over Minnesota. He completed 26 of 33 passes for 333 yards, with a 53-yard TD to WR Quez Watkins and 1 INT. Hurts added 57 yards and a pair of scores on 11 carries, ranking 3rd among fantasy QBs for Week 2. Hurts' TD runs came from 3 and 26 yards out. Favorable matchups with Washington, Jacksonville and Arizona sit in the next 3 weeks.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts heads into Monday night as the 5th-highest scorer among QBs (in formats with 4-point TD passes) despite throwing for just 243 yards and 0 TDs in Sunday's win over the Lions. The driver, of course, was his 15-90-1 rushing line, which came from a mix of designed running plays and scrambles. Philadelphia kept the RPO heavily involved in the offense, and Hurts displayed an immediate connection with new WR A.J. Brown. The opener looked like exactly what you should have expected if you drafted Hurts, with plenty of upside remaining on the passing front.

This isn't a bad thing to hear from HC Nick Sirianni, about Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, according to NBC Sports Philly's Reuben Frank: "Jalen's practice yesterday was the best practice he's had as an Eagle, or at least since I've been here. What he was going with the football and being able to go through reads and progressions that fast and getting the ball where it needed to go was unbelievable." It's possible the Philadelphia passing offense throws significantly more often than we're projecting. We're already excited about the fantasy upside for Hurts and TE Dallas Goedert. The volume boost, though, would be key for A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith to pay off at their ADPs.

Eagles OC Shane Steichen discussed QB Jalen Hurts at OTAs. “He just has a relentless effort to be great,” Steichen said. “Every approach he takes — he doesn’t have an offseason. He’s always on it. He’s always thinking about football. We’re always talking football, day in and day out, and he’s continuing to grow as a player, as a leader, every single day.” Steichen added that footwork has been an offseason focus as the club looks to add polish to Hurts' game. Ultimately, this offseason couldn’t have gone much better for the 24-year-old (in August). He’s a top-8 fantasy passer with clear upside into the top-3.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts said Wednesday, "I'm good now" after undergoing left ankle surgery on February 2. We'll keep an eye on it this spring and summer, but it shouldn't be an issue by the time Week 1 rolls around. With WR A.J. Brown added to his arsenal, Hurts has easy top-5 QB upside this year.

The Eagles traded the 16th, 19th and 194th overall picks of this month's draft to the Saints in exchange for the 18th, 101st and 237th overall picks, plus a 2023 1st-rounder and a 2024 2nd-rounder. The big takeaway here is that New Orleans is evidently higher on the top of this year's class than Philadelphia. The Saints now have 3 of the first 49 picks of this year's draft. The Eagles still hold the 15th and 18th overall picks -- plus a pair of 1st-rounders next year. That's notable because next year's QB class looks much stronger than this year's. "The Eagles' actions this offseason continue to suggest that while they like quarterback Jalen Hurts, they're not married to him as the long-term starter," ESPN's Tim McManus writes.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will have surgery today on the left ankle he injured in Week 12 against the Giants, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The injury was reported to be a high-ankle sprain, though Hurts missed just 1 game (with the bye week mixed in). Hurts suffered a similar injury to his right ankle in 2018 at Alabama, requiring "tightrope" surgery to address it, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. It's not yet clear whether he'll have the same procedure this time. Pelissero reports that Hurts is expected to be ready for OTAs, and he returned to play Philly's final 5 game. So it appears the ankle should not be an issue going forward.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman threw his support behind QB Jalen Hurts as the team's starter in Wednesday's end-of-season press conference. "We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really as a first-year starter and second-year player and leading this team to the playoffs," Roseman said. "I’m tremendously impressed by his work ethic and his leadership. The last time we talked was during camp and we said we wanted to see him take the bull by the horn, and he certainly did that." Hurts completed 61.3% of his passes and averaged 7.3 yards per attempt with 16 TDs vs. 9 INTs in 2021, ranking 22nd among 31 qualifiers in QB Rating. He also led all QBs with 782 rushing yards and 10 TDs to finish 10th in fantasy points. We'll see if Philly's actions this offseason match Roseman's comments. If Hurts enters 2022 as the starter, he'll be a lower-end QB1 in fantasy drafts.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. Dallas. In his place, Gardner Minshew will make his 2nd start of the season.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He put in 3 full practices to close the week and should at least be close to 100% for Tuesday night's game vs. Washington.

The Washington at Philadelphia game originally scheduled for Sunday has been moved to Tuesday at 7 pm ET due to The Football Team's COVID outbreak, insider Albert Breer reports. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if any of Washington's players currently on the COVID list are activated by Tuesday. The extra 2 days can't hurt Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, who is recovering from what's been reported as a high-ankle sprain. Washington WR Terry McLaurin and RB J.D. McKissic will have a better chance to clear concussion protocol before kickoff.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. Washington. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. That suggests that Hurts is likely to play on Sunday -- but we're also expecting his rushing ability to be limited as he returns from what was reportedly a high-ankle sprain.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice. Reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Hurts' status for Sunday's game vs. Washington remains uncertain. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. We knew Hurts was battling a sprain, but this is the first time we've heard that it's a high-ankle sprain, which is a tougher injury to return from. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo calls Hurts "legit questionable" for Sunday's game vs. Washington. We'll keep a close eye on him over the next few days. But, if Hurts does play, it's tough to imagine him posting his usual rushing production with this injury.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Wednesday that QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is "trending upward." Sirianni said that both Hurts and QB Gardner Minshew would get reps in Wednesday's walkthrough and stopped short of guaranteeing that Hurts will play vs. Washington this weekend. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Jalen Hurts remains the Eagles' starting QB, HC Nick Sirianni confirmed. QB Gardner Minshew played well in relief of Hurts on Sunday, completing 20 of 25 passes for 242 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs vs. the Jets ... but it was the Jets. As long as Hurts' ankle checks out, he'll be back under center for Week 15 vs. Washington.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is officially inactive for today’s game vs. the Jets, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. QB Gardner Minshew gets the start and is a viable play in 2-QB and Superflex leagues against the #31 QB defense. The Eagles still figure to lean on their running game in this one.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jets, according to Eagles writer Derrick Gunn. That will make Gardner Minshew the starter. Gunn adds that RB Boston Scott will be a game-time decision. Scott is dealing with an illness that kept him out of practice all week. With Jordan Howard ruled out, Miles Sanders could be in for a bigger-than-normal workload in 1 of the league's most favorable matchups for RB scoring.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hurts "very well may be out" but that the team wants to "see how Hurts is feeling" Sunday before making a final decision on his status. It still sounds like you should make alternate plans at QB if you had been planning to use Hurts.
